Elizabeth Stewart, Princess of Scotland was a daughter of Robert II of Scotland and Euphemia de Ross. She was born between 1356 and 1370, well after her parents' marriage on 2 May 1355. Her brothers were David Stewart, Earl of Strathearn and Walter Stewart, Earl of Atholl, and her half-brother was Robert III of Scotland.
She married David Lindsay 22nd Feb 1375. Her dowry was the barony of Strathnairn in Inverness-shire. In 1398, her father granted Lindsay the title of Earl of Crawford. They had seven, possibly eight, children:
- Gerard Lindsay (d. before 1421)
- Ingram Lindsay, Bishop of Aberdeen (d. 1458)
- Marjorie Lindsay, married Sir William Douglas. They were parents of Catherine Douglas.
- Alexander Lindsay, 2nd Earl of Crawford (c. 1387–1438)
- David Lindsay, Lord of Newdosk (1407–?); he later became a priest
- Elizabeth Lindsay; she married Sir Robert Keith.
- Elizabeth Lindsay (1407–?); married Robert Erskine, 1st Lord Erskine ; she may have been confused with her sister of the same name, and it is possible that they were one and the same person.
- Isabella Lindsay (1407–?), married Sir John Maxwell of Pollok, and had issue.
They presumably lived at Crawford Castle.
